Odds and Ends

Trellis Tomatoes

Here’s a picture of one of my tomato plants (don’t remember the variety) that I planted in a cage next to a trellis.  The thing has grown above the 8-foot trellis!  This usually happens when a high-nitrogen fertilizer is used, but only bokashi and compost were used on this plant.  It is also putting out plenty of tomatoes, too!

I buried another bucket of finished bokashi in my compost heap and it’s heating up well.  I have some beets, Swiss chard, and a couple of other seeds started for a fall garden and have been thinning them with a pair of scissors, instead of pulling them.  Here is my artwork.

This was done with oil pastels on card stock.

Touch Picnic
